ABSTRACT
Established in the 18th century and still used by the town’s tiny Jewish community, the cemetery is believed to be the oldest Jewish cemetery in Transylvania and one of the oldest in Romania [7]. Extending over about 21,500 square meters, it includes 2,038 graves and 1,960 stones. It was used both by the initial Sephardic community but also by the Ashkenazi community, which over time became the majority in the town [4]. Among other things, the research details the work has been carried out on the cemetery funded by the Alba County Council, which employs new technology such as laser scanning to document stones and make a complete inventory of the oldest section of its historical section, accessible via a GIS web application[5], [6]. The study area presented an accelerated dynamic as regards the degradation of the environmental components [9].
